Not a good shoe

I am a stock owner of UA, so naturally I have a lot of UA gear, this shoe is one of the worst UA running shoe I have had. I think they went for looks only because they missed comfort completely. Two weeks into using them, they still hurt around the side of the arch and in that area it feels unusually hard. The shoe laces are cool looking too, but they are too spongy so it makes it harder to get them tied tight to your liking. I can't speak to the electronics on them as I have no intent on using it. I recommend buying a lower tier UA running shoe as it will be more comfortable and save you some cash too.

UA Marketing Needs Significant Improvement

So you folks know Exactly what size I require - given I have purchased multiple pairs. (I require 4W) - yet every day I get a marketing email. Today the Title was - We Selected these Just for you - Yet None of the products came in wide. This annoyance and time consuming issue (I waste time to look - when there is no way I could purchase) - is not that difficult to fix - I m sure I am not alone. Please fix this issue

Beware Breaks Quickly

The shoe is extremely comfortable. However, after 100 miles the eyelet on the left shoe broke, Making them worthless! For the price of these shoes I would not recommend them.

Less than 2 weeks and already the sole hurting my

With less than 2 weeks of moderate use and the right foot sole is hurting my foot really bad that I can not wear it anymore the left foot is fine only one foot for such expensive shoes you would expect it to last longer the right foot is defective or something my first time buying UA and will be my last.

Machina running shoes

Was really looking forward to getting these shoes,and to start of I was very impressed,they where very comfortable and really liked the built in blue tooth. But after around 125 miles I noticed that the soles had completely worn through,the right shoe became noisy and the Bluetooth became inaccurate,for the price of these I expected them to last a lot longer,was a shame because I really was impressed to start of with,will not be buying these again. Have noticed that a few other reviews have reported similar problems.

Disappointing

I really wanted to like these shoes. The appearance and the features on paper sounded great. But after trying really hard to give them a shot (I have put about 100 miles on them), I just don't like them at all. The first thing is the fit. I find them really tight which is a first in shoes for me. I traditionally have narrow feet and usually my only issue is that the shoes feel sloppy. Not the case with these. My feet feel cramped and uncomfortable. For context I currently run in pairs of Altras, Hokas, Sauconys, and Salomons (when I'm not using the UAs) and do not have this issue in any of those other shoes. The second issue is the performance. I expected a shoe that was plush enough for long runs, but still responsive. Instead I find them to be heavy and firm to the point of feeling clunky. Again, I run in a lot of different shoes with different levels of cushioning and responsiveness and I have been able to comfortably adapt to all of those. The Machinas just have not broken in in a way that I feel comfortable running more than a few miles in them at a time. The last thing is that I can see how UA is attempting to compete in the market with the rest of the shoe companies utilizing carbon fiber plate technology. Where they missed the mark is that they tried to create a daily running shoe where those others are more light weight trainers and racing shoes. In doing so, they made a shoe that is not a great daily trainer and not a shoe you can race in. Like I said, I really wanted to like this shoe because I like so much of the other things that UA does (the Tribase Reign is one of the best shoes I've ever used for the gym), but the HOVR Machina just does not work for me and is not worth the hefty price tag. Wish I could have that money back for UA running apparel instead.

Decepción de compra....

Me he llevado una gran decepción con estas zapatillas. Soy un correror de 91 kilos y una altura de 1.70cm llevo 2 años corriendo cada día salgo a correr una media de 10 kilómetros. Compré éstas zapatillas por la información y los comentarios... Mi decepción a sido, cuando salgo a correr con ellas tengo que parar sobre los 3 kilómetros, las piernas se me cargan, esto no me había pasado antes. No las recomiendo para gente pesada ya que no absorben el impacto.

Great shoe, but the blue tooth wouldn't connect

Love the shoe, but if you pay this amount, the blue tooth better work. That's why I gave it a one star. Will probably send them back for a refund

Too tight in to toe box area

I really wanted to like these shoes. I have worn UA running shoes for many years. The issue with these shoes are in the toe box area. They are too tight for my feet. Some reviews stated that the left foot was too tight and irritating their pinky toe. In my case, both shoes boxes were too tight. I am returning the shoes since it appears that their will be no chance for them to stretch out based on other reviews. Too bad because I really liked the shoes.

Not even close to worth it!

I bought these shoes because I was intrigued by the technology. I can not remember ever spending this much on a pair of running shoes, so I mulled it over for awhile. I have run over 80 miles in them so I have given them a decent chance but they are causing my left foot some increasing discomfort right along the outer edge near my pinky toe. The left one is just too tight and has not relaxed any since I got them. The tech is OK when it works properly. I get the cadence and stride information but the workout does not mirror to my apple watch since I started using the bluetooth enabled shoes (was never problem before). I can get it to work if erase both apps from my phone and watch, turn both off and restart, but it only works one time and then back to no mirroring. Long story short, I am going back to my older, less expensive, more comfortable shoe brand.
